Church Membership

To become a valuable member of any organization is always to assume a certain responsibility, since membership means the agreement not only to sustain and support the object for which the organization is formed, but also to enter, willingly and whole-heartedly, into active work for the advancement of all its varied purposes and aims. Then it goes without saying that before uniting with an organization one should be fully aware not only of its purposes and aims, but also of one's own desire and intention to fulfill all the demands which such association would involve.

When one approaches membership in the Church of Christ, Scientist, he is coming face to face with a decision of deepest import. He is being called upon to decide as to whether he will unite all his efforts with those who are endeavoring to establish God's kingdom on earth in the way Christian Science points out, or whether he will remain outside the Christian Science church organization, and thus throw in his lot with the multitudes who either are drifting along without chart or compass or at best are but clinging to something less than the perfect Science of Being.
